Sometimes I really crave that classic cobbler from my childhood, but I also want to watch what I am eating so I tend to go for this lighter version that offers a similar taste profile and satisfaction.
This easy Crock-pot Fruit Crisp recipe is a great alternative to a traditional cobbler and also much more fun to make in the hot summer months since it won’t heat up your house with a hot stove. Use your preferred fruit but we love the apple and berry combination listed below.
Crock-pot Fruit Crisp Recipe
- 2 Cups Chopped Granny Smith Apples
- 2 Cups Blackberries
- 1/2 Cup Granulated White Sugar or Sugar Substitute of preference
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Apple Juice
- 1 Cup Quick Oats

In your crock-pot mix together all filling ingredients until well blended.
